Small World Realms - Board Game Box Shot

Small World Realms

146 33 5

Renowned for their superb cartography, the maps of the Imperial Wizards detailed even the most obscure caves and secretive races of Small World. But the Great Cataclysm (Mystic Orcs at play?) shook the landscape, redrawing frontiers and creating new Realms to be explored the world over...

Small World Realms features scores of puzzle-like geomorphic Terrain regions and a dozen new Scenarios, including such instant classics as The Rusted Throne and A Game of Gods. Players can also creatively combine the Terrain to build their own custom maps and scenarios making Realms the definitive world-building toolkit for Small World and Small World Underground fans alike.

“Pros and Cons”

Pros
Massive new options for Small World and Small World Underground – Ever changing board. You can design a new board for each game or use one of the 12 preset scenarios. The 12 scenarios include tile set options for 2-5 players, keeping the board small and the battles intense.

Variant Rules for the preset scenarios – Some are simple rules like the River Rules from Small World Underground. Others rules limit where your race can enter the board or grant bonus coins that drive expansion.

Includes the Tunnels Mini-Expansion – Two of the scenarios use the tunnels with the Realms tiles but they can also be used to connect Small World to Small World Underground if you own both games. Those rules (along with all Small World Rules) can be downloaded from the manufacture’s website.

Cons
Set Up Time
– The tiles offer a lot of options but if you are setting up one of the preset scenarios in the booklet, the setup time can be 5-10 minutes. This is made a little more difficult by the stylized letters on the tiles. If you like puzzles, you may enjoy this process!

Movable Tiles – As in most tile games, the board can shift apart with energetic play. Don’t bump the table!

Summery
Overall, this is a great expansion to both Small World and Small World Underground. It is the logical progression to a game that specializes in replay-ability, allowing a different and customizable board each game. If you like the core game, this is a great expansion.

“Great game!”

I’ve been playing this game for a little while now and I must say, it exceeded my expectations. I’ve had great fun while playing and had some really fantastic game nights playing just Small World with all the expansions.
I’ve tried almost all expansions. My boyfriend just got realms, so I’m really loooking forward to that, since the possibility of playing both underground and the regular set, makes it much more advanced. Suddenly what you thought was a simple strategy game becomes a whole lot more than that.
I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a game everyone would be interested in playing on a game night! Fits all sizes and ages! 😉
